During the Sailing Today Awards ceremony, which took place at the Southampton Boat Show on 16 September, it was declared winner of the Multihull category!
During the awards ceremony, Sam Fortescue, editor of Sailing Today magazine said:
“Anyone who has chartered or cruised in the world’s warmer waters will recognise the distinctive outline of Lagoon’s phenomenally successful catamarans. The newly launched 42 is at once familiar and exciting, with a host of subtle tweaks to the lines around the bows and a new coachroof. Moving the mast aft has improved the boat’s balance, but she’s still a strong performer, even upwind. And we love the improved communications between helm and cockpit, which flows seamlessly into the saloon on the same level. Expect to see one soon – they’re selling like hotcakes!"
This award is already the second received since the 42’s launch in January 2016.
